Anglo Saxon England led by Imogen Corrigan

We were very fortunate to have Imogen Corrigan as a lecturer in July this year, delivering a fascinating, informative and well illustrated lecture on Fra Filippo Lippi. Imogen originally spent 20 years in the British Army but then changed career completely, by turning to a lifelong interest. She graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in medieval history from the University of Kent. She works as a freelance lecturer and has run a number of lecture/ study tours throughout the UK and England and often lectures on board ship.
The Day of Special Interest offers three lectures. The first lecture 'The First Prize' gives an insight into the Glories of Anglo Saxon England and its treasures, before the Norman Conquest and why it was so appealing to migrants. The second 'The Significance of the Ship-Burial at Sutton Hoo' features the discovery of the seventh century ship buried at Sutton Hoo and an insight into the extraordinarily rich treasure hoard discovered within the burial mound. The third 'The Vikings are Coming' tells of the Viking Invasions and the havoc they wrought, as well as giving us a closer look at their trading and sea-faring skills and many of their artefacts which still survive.

This Day of Special Interest will be held in St. Mary's Priory Centre on Friday 2nd March 2018. The day will start at 10.30 am, with a coffee break at 11.30. After the second session, there will be a light buffet lunch and the day will end at approximately 3.15 pm.

The cost for the day will be £32 per person, including coffee and lunch. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
